Tribute poem: The world was grey.... [In reply to] Can't Post

The world was grey, our Founders all,
Admins, Staff, stand proud and tall:
Here hammered, chiseled, primed the page,
Here forged the forges, staged the stage,
From posters bold, the new and old,
to those who lurk within the fold,
Now bask and shine from this fair beacon
across the years of fandom speakin’,
That might have lain aside, entombed
like Fundin’s son in Khazad-dûm,
but for, with thanks, your hard upkeep,
And now, has bloomed, its roots plunged deep.

[spoken:] Once upon a time in Arda, First Age…

Beren, on the run from the Dark,
Its Sudden-Flame strike
Came down on his life, lived rough,
So rough,
Luthien was out in the glade,
She ran from the Man,
His limbs stayed by chains of love,
Of love.

But Thingol said to hold on,
What have you got?
You can’t just have the Princess, that is asking a lot.
You’ll fetch the jewels from ol’ Morgoth,
for love,
Or have her you’ll not!

Whoa, if that’s your will,
Whoa, this I will fulfill!
In my hand from the Crown, a Silmaril,
Whoa, this I will fulfill!
This I will fulfill!
